technology that most people have in their pockets. antoniades: inside this cell phone we find a tiny little camera. so if you were to take off the majority of it you'd be left with an imaging chip. if you were to take 368 of these and make a big mosaic out of them and start shooting images now you have argus. narrator: unlike the predator camera that limits field of view, argus melds together video from each of its 368 chips to create a 1.8 billion pixel video stream. this makes it possible to zoom in and still see tremendous detail. whether argus has been deployed in the field is classified. antoniades: i'm not at liberty to discuss plans with the government. but if we had our choice we would like argus to be over the same area 24 hours a day seven days a week. that's not very easily achievable with manned platforms. this is where uavs come in and they're absolutely the perfect platform. narrator: argus may be mounted on an armed uav like the predator, a long-range platform like the giant global hawk or a development craft called the solar eagle that may someday stay aloft for years
